Verse 1
Behold the Saviour of mankind
Nailed to the shameful tree!
How vast the love that Him inclined
To bleed and die for thee!

verse 2
Hark, how He groans! while nature shakes,
And earth's strong pillars bend;
The temple's veil in sunder breaks,
The solid marbles rend.

verse 3
'Tis done! The precious ransom's paid;
Receive My soul! He cries:
See where He bows His sacred head!
He bows His head, and dies!

verse 4
But soon He'll break death's envious chain,
And in full glory shine;
O Lamb of God, was ever pain,
Was ever love, like Thine?
